Kieran Halpin is the special guest at Irvine Folk Club on Wednesday 6th February and that means it is in the ‘unmissable’ category for fans of live folk music.
A career that started in 1974, with 17 albums to his name, thousands of gigs played at venues all over the world, a prolific songwriter of great quality are the key musical facts about Mr Halpin. What the facts don’t tell you is his continuing search for new approaches to present his songs nor does it describe the powerful nature of a live Kieran Halpin performance. All his live gigs resonate with his compellingly powerful yet intimate and intense performance.
He plays acoustic guitar, regales the audience with explanations of where each song comes from and links it all together with some very funny asides. He is a man of very, dry wit.
Kieran Halpin has played on a number of occasions at the Irvine Club. He is always invited back because he is such a unique writer and performer. Kieran is also one of the hardest working artists with upwards of 160 gigs each year with all the travelling that entails and still he finds time to write songs.
DON’T MISS what promises to be a very special night.
The Club meets in Vineburgh Community Centre in Quarry Road, starts at 8pm and it’s BYOB.
